|Brokedown Palast - A Berlin Story - Ole Tangen Jr.|
Documentary 17 min. Germany 2006 Called the ugliest building in Berlin, the Palast der Republik is one of the last remaining relics of the former GDR in the heart of the city. But after the Berlin and German governments voted to tear the building down, a number of Berliners rose up to save the Palast. Brokedown Palast not only documents this political debate but is a meditation on the building, it’s city and the residual emotions and sentiments over this fading chapter in modern German history...

|Half City [Halbstadt] (Germany 1988) - silent - Joachim Polzer|
One year before the Berlin Wall fell, this silent black&white documentary from 1988 is a profile of West-Berlin: places and people, moods and locations; you eventually see "Checkpoint Charlie" still in function. It's a documentary shot in autumn and winter in all shades of grey, black and white.

|Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens (A Symphony of Horror) - Enrico Dieckmann & Albin Grau|
This is the most complete version available (just over 93 minutes) as this movie was demanded by Bram Stokers widow to be destroyed after winning 2 lawsuits in the mid & late 1920's. Tinted scenes and beautiful quality. I have seen the current version here at archive.org and decided to post this one as it is of much better video quality, although the music is a nit hokey. Enjoy this classic horror with the very creepy Max Schrek as the (IMHO) best vampire ever to waltz across the silver screen...
